Melinda and The Night Sky are a Pittsburgh-based blues/rock band lead by lead-singer Melinda Colaizzi and guitarist/producer Kristian Habenicht. Blending their reverence for traditional blues and heavy rock with their love for modern hip-hop and soul, The Night Sky's depth is evident in a single downbeat. Kristian's playing immediately conjures images of Prince and Jimi Hendrix, a lightning that might command all of an audience's attention if it weren't for the fact that Melinda's voice is its own indomitable, thunderous presence, redolent of past greats like Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.
Moonshine Society is a Washington, DC, blues band and the offspring of three promising young music scholars who came together at Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music. Leading the troupe is impassioned, soulful singer and songwriter Jenny Langer (FKA Black Betty), who has shared the stage with such musical greats as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks and Jack Pearson of Allman Brothers fame, Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov't Mule and Jimmy Vivino from Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
